I am so darn confused. let me tell my story. Oct 7, 2009 diagnosed with metastatic pappillary carincoma. I had my total thyroid removed and a 5cm tumor that was attached to my caratiod artery, neck desstion. I had 131 rai-200 on nov. 17, 2007. it showed cancer in my left lypmph nodes too. I had my 6 month follow up in June 2010 and my thyroglblin is 12.3. I a second treatment of RAI-200. Thyriod scan is negative. Petscan is no abnormalitites. I asked the doc why is my throygulin is elevated. He says I am clear and he will see me in 6 months. I thought the thyrogulbin need to be undetectable. I am on 0.137 of synthriod for TSH suppression. I just dont understand. And he won't explain it to me. What the heck should I do...
